“The Key” magazine came about as a result of an initiative driven by North Skelton’s councillor at that time, Mike Stephens. The idea, to produce a local magazine, was picked up by Norma Templeman (nee Burlureaux) who, with the assistance of her brother, Don, would go on to produce a total of thirty seven issues. The first edition was published in December 1991.
The project to digitize all the issues was run by Howard Wilson, chair of Skelton History Group, with help from other group members. Special mention must be made of the work done by Chris Twigg, project manager of the East Cleveland’s Industrial Heritage project, who helped with the technicalities of scanning the copies and preparing the PDF files.
Below, you will find links to all thirty seven issues. Enjoy the nostalgia!
